Aside from beating an Egg McMuffin in taste any day, this breakfast sandwich is a great ratio of carbs to protein, and the nutrients really show up in greens, tomato, and avocado. It can be modified however you like to save time or suit your taste.
When out of buttermilk one day, a swap of kefir (since it shares that nice bitterness quality) created this gluten free pancake recipe and a household favorite was born! Contrary to the name may imply, buckwheat is in fact gluten free. Kefir is chock full of probiotics which are gut friendly and will aid in digestion and really ups the health factor for these pancakes. We love using Kerrygold butter which is grassfed - awesome if you can find it! - and you can top these with a little more butter and pure maple syrup, some warmed up strawberries, heated almond butter, you name it!
What's a Greek American girl to do who is jonesing for some home-cooking to reminisce about her childhood but she can't eat gluten? She improvises with nutritional food swaps, of course! Maria uses hemp hearts here in place of bread crumbs to dish up some Greek keftedes. Served with a side of sweet potatoes and roasted broccoli this is a hearty dish that'll take you back to the homeland.
